    As you can see it here, Strikers 1945 III is Strikers 1999. If you can run dol files on Gamecube, you can try my build of FBA for Gamecube. Only 1945kiii.zip is supported.
    I compiled it 2 or 3 years ago.

    The psikyo core I posted have all drivers(d_psikyo4 has no vm) and compiled with Retroarch 1.3.6 so yes it's bigger. In fact it was lacking only about 2mb maybe. I'm still very suprised that it runs on GC.

    I haven't received a response to my question on gc-forever yet. I'd like to merge it but I also don't want to risk upsetting somebody.

    What did he specifically state @Wiimpathy when you asked him? You happen to have those quotes still?

    Ok, I guess it's not top secret :

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Perhaps your pm hasn't been sent because it requires a minimum of forums posts.

    Ah OK.

    Should I just commit this to our Github then given that permission was granted for this purpose and assume there isn't a major problem here, or should I contact him some other way still?

    And yes, I might just not meet the minimum of forum posts. That is quite an unfair system TBH, and makes it impossible to reach certain people on their forum as an outsider.

    Personally, I'd prefer an answer from tueidj. I'm not sure merging in your repository is the same as posting builds here. Maybe, I'm too careful, last time I used extrem's code I forgot the license file and he scolds me.:lol:

    Yes, could you maybe do me a favor?

    Try contacting him on gc-forever and ask him on my behalf, and show him the thread. If it's indeed true that my PMs are not getting through to him, that could be one possible way perhaps to still be able to ask the question.

    OMG!!!
    This is by far one of the greatest news of the Wii Scene in years!
    Thank you so much Wiimpathy!
    Tested Garou, KOF2002, SVC and they worked PERFECT in 240p glory!

    OFF: With your talent, can you help us to finally fix the retroarch mame2000 core, that emulate 95% of the mame2000 romset perfectly in full speed, but has some garbage graphics in some boards (SEGA, KONAMI, TAITO, DATA EAST...)?

    KEEP IT UP!!!

    Good morning, I have followed the instruction and have found the the retroarch version 1.7.0 does not recognize the Cps3 core, is that correct?
    Also for the Large NeoGeo games, do I load the one of the converted cache files or the zipped ROM or neither?

    Thanks for your response

    Hi, I've just literally found this post.
    So, I've been testing this JUST NOW.
    And I want to report my findings.

    1.- I've downloaded everything in the OP except for the Rom Converter. I downloaded the one that's on the comments.
    2.- I've followed everything on the mini how to, and I couldn't make it work.
    3.- I've followed everything on the mini how to, BUT WITH THE LATEST VERSION OF RETROARCH (not the one given in OP) and IT WORKS PERFECTLY

    So far I've only tested:
    - KOF 2003 which is running on my TV as I'm writting this.
    - SNK vs CAPCOM and it works good.

    Sidenote: I couldn't fine a working Street Fighter III rom, so I haven't tested the FinalBurn Alpha CPS3 core.

    Long story short: The newest RetroArch version works completely fine with this.
    Just copy
    CACHE to Retroarch/System
    and your roms in your prefered folder.

    WITHOUT ANY SOUND ISSUES

    Oh my... 1.7?

    I've tested the cores with 1.5.3 and they're both recognized by this version.
    Try it if you can.

    Remember where the cores goes to.

    hey wiimpathy, no matter what i try, i cant get svc plus and super plus to make proper cache files. ive tested all the larger neogeo roms, these are the only ones ive had issues with. also do you plan on adding frameskip to cps3? i think that would be pretty awesome. either 1 frame skip or auto. anyway, thanks again, and lemme know if u have an idea as to whats wrong with svcplus and svcsplus, thanks

    edit: after deleting the roms and cache files, and dling the exact same roms and trying again, it seems to have created what looks to be proper cache files, though its late and now and ill have to test them out tomorrow.

    SVC PLUS is working if you have the latest Rom converter and neogeo core. All games should work except pcb versions that are about 100MB. If it fails, it's could be a rom not supported by the converter/fba.

    I don't think I'll add frameskip to CPS3. It's in some Mame builds but no idea for fba libretro. A global frameskip for retroarch would be better. If someone knows how to do it, feel free to help.

    The lag in Striker 1945 Plus happens on a real NeoGeo too. You have to change the CPU Speed Overclock to 200 in the core option if you want smoother gameplay.

    Just found this beauty of a topic. I have only tried Garou MOTW on retroarch 1.3.6 but I can't get it to load. It passes al the VM checks then I just have a blanck screen, no unibios screen.
    I am I right in understanding that the neogeo.zip bios file should be in the same directory as the MOTW.zip file?

    thanks for the great work wiimpathy!

    I have neogeo.zip in the same folder as my Neogeo Roms.
    But this past Sunday, I noticed that I have neogeo.zip in System folder too.

    Try using Retroarch 1.6.9 and just copy CACHE into SYSTEM and use the cores given in the Original Post.

    It should work as good as my setup.

    This is simply awesome @Wiimpathy. It's great to see that you finally implemented this. It would be great to have it in the last official RetroArch version (although it would be greater to have a separate emulator for NeoGeo games).
    I'm not sure who would be better to ask my next questions @LibretroRetroArc or @Wiimpathy but here they are:
    The problem I have here is that this core only let you load the games that are stored in its database of that FBA version with the right CRC32... you can't load any other game even if it would run perfectly in the emulator. I'm editing some games, so the CRC32 doesn't match with the ones of that FinalBurn, so RetroArch doesn't load the game... is there any posibility of having this games working? Maybe adding a folder or file with the aditional rom drivers?
    And other thing I see a bit anoying is that RetroArch only shows the zip names when you are going to load the game... is possible to add a text file with the zip file name and the full name of the game and make to RetroArch show the Full name of the games?
    Thanks and congratulations for all the great job!

    Well, I guess it won't be in the official Retroarch since we don't know if Tueidj is ok or not.

    I don't know a good and simple way to skip the crc check but I agree that it could be useful.

    Regarding the names, WiiFlow can display full names thanks to a custom_titles file. I don't think it's easy and worthy modifying Retroarch browser for that.
